balance, i thought that governor romney's body language was good. the expression on his face, an expression, are familiar with, it's kind of a half smile, not a smirk. he was looking at the president, while he spoke, was probably better than having him looking down as president obama did. on body language, if that's what that is, those are my observations. >> joe, one of the messages the president seemed to want to get across was that in his view, governor romney wasn't offering specifics and they needed to hear sprvegs. in part, governor romney answered, saying, my experience as governor, you don't announce of a piece of legislation and say it's my way or the highway, that's not how you get things done. but in general, he was saying that he is offering specifics, but can't get too specific because you won't have a meaningful bipartisan debate that results in real legislation. your thoughts on how that exchange went between the two of them? >> well, i think the president's probably trying to get to the fact that we are finding that a lot of people are saying in the polls that the

thought romney won by two touchdowns. you know? when a challenger steps up on the stage that gives stature, when performing the way romney did, i think changes things. it changes momentum. romney campaign is at a terrible month. to the extent people are saying who is this guy? all of a sudden thrk romney shows up. and he's knowledgeable, confident and he's got nerve. he never backed down on any of time obama hurled a particular at him, he came back with a three-point answer. so i think he didn't just hold his own, but showed himself to be equal to the president and is taking one by far the majority of the rounds. think for him what that does is changes the narrative of the campaign that is so it's going nowhere, making mistake after mistake to one which people stop and say is that the guy? this is the first time they're seeing him unfiltered. that is not the guy we thought we read about and heard about. he's different from that. with obama, i thought he had a weak night. it looked as if he's sitting on a leaf. i can guarantee you had he been behind in the post he would have had it

: good morning and thank you for taking my call. i watched the debate and i really thought mitt romney had a real good night. everything that president obama accused him of, he had an answer for. he had all the facts and figures in front of him to tell exactly what he was doing. he did a good job as far as explaining what he would do for energy policy, education, for jobs. that came across really strong. one comment about $90 billion given to bring jobs where we could have hired 2 million teachers really made a huge difference on that, too. president obama looks like he was uncomfortable. he did not look like he wanted to be there. mitt romney had a good night. whether that will show up at the polls is another story. i think mitt romney has a good shot now. if they get mitt romney in there, it is a win for a america, too. host: of next is bernard in south carolina. hello. caller: how are you doing? i do not understand what the caller was saying because mitt romney did not explain anything. he kept saying he knew how to do it, but he never said how he was going to do it. he brought up a

thought mitt romney showed great poise during the debate. he just looked overall more polished than obama did. i thought the moderating was great. people have to get their views across. i believe that obama during the debate concluded even more to me that he is not what we need over the next four years. he has talked about the same things for the past year during the campaign, which is providing more safety nets for lower income people, putting in more government regulations on small businesses and big businesses, he has not taken china seriously, taking american jobs and being a money manipulator. he has added so much to the national debt to that he promised to reduce. i know it is not all of his fault and the congress is to blame, too, but he is the guy that has to take charge and get people realizing we are on a path to destruction. i think we need a new president in 2012. >> will also take some tweets. karl rove says -- next is a viewer watching us from oklahoma who is a democrat. this is gary. >> thank you. i thought the president held up on mr. romney. mr. romney comes out and
